|Sagitec Solutions, in collaboration with AID India, donated money to rebuild seven houses for families who lost their homes during the 2015 Chennai floods.|
Sagitec Solutions is helping Chennai, India rebuild after a 100-year storm ravaged the city in December 2015. The storm, which dumped nearly 11 inches of rain, came on the heels of the rainiest November in the city’s history. The storm left incredible damage in its wake: more than 500 people were killed and more than 1.8 million people were displaced.
Sagitec Solutions, which has an office in Chennai, could not sit idle while the city grappled to rebuild. The custom software development company and their employees joined forces with AID India to build seven houses for underprivileged families who lost their homes during the flood.
The first home was handed over to the family last week; the remaining six homes are expected to be completed in the next week.
The recipients of the home are extremely grateful to Sagitec for their generous donation, said Padmini Sreenivasan, project director for AID India.
AID India is a non-profit organization founded in 1996 that works on various development initiatives in the state of Tamil Nadu. Chennai is the state’s capital and largest city.
“We thank Sagitec Solutions for supporting us in this venture to help underprivileged families affected by the flood rebuild their homes,” said Sreenivasan.
Sagitec Solutions believes that the role of business is much greater than merely making a profit – it must also be a social and environmental steward. This notion is underscored in one of the company’s core values, which states “Be bigger than ourselves.” Specifically, Sagitec is a company that believes in contributing to the communities in which the company operates; to see things from different perspectives; and to do more than is expected.
Sagitec’s CEO Piyush Jain said he is extremely proud of the team members who supported this important cause.
“This initiative is very important, and I want to thank all of the employees who generously supported this effort.”
